    I guess DK has proven himself in the finisher role.

    With teams playing 9 games minimum, 15 man squads leaves you with little margin for error. If conditions suit, India might want to play Bhuvi Bumrah and Shami in the one game.. For Australia, if Maxwell gets injured the XI that we will play would look really weird (of course a late Carey injury would screw things too).
    GoodAreasShane and SeamUp like this.

    A Glenn Maxwell injury could mean:

    Aaron Finch (capt), David Warner, Steve Smith, Shaun Marsh, Alex Carey (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Jhye Richardson, Adam Zampa

    Absolutely. With all teams playing three more games it would make sense to allow one extra squad member at least

    Hardik is the 4th seamer. Interesting considering it is fairly early in the summer when the comp starts. Guess you got to play to your strengths and pick 3 spinners.

    Considering I've seen puffs of dust on some of the county pitches, in April, I wouldn't be too worried about Hardik being potentially not good enough on a seaming wicket. I expect they'll mostly prepare the billiard-table type pitches they have recently.

    Fair point actually. Which pitches did you see that on. I know Leach got 6 v Notts but bad batting or helpful pitch.

    It will generally be good batting pitches with wear and tear at the back end. So if you think pace off the ball will help like India it is fine. But I suppose atmospheric conditions do play a role too.

    Could one of the mods alter my first post and put the squads in there just to make it easier to find?

    They can't.

    They'd be of some use if they did..

    India goes for the old guard in DK, freaking dude made his debut many many years ago.

    I feel old.

    That's how I felt about Tendulkar when I was your age.

    Still better than Rayudu. I wouldn't have Karthik but what's wrong with Shankar?

    Somehow and for some reason India randomly still try to keep Parthiv Patel and Dinesh Karthik relevant.
